Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – BBC Radio1 Essential Mix (8-18-12)
Our affinity for Orlando Higginbottom, aka Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs or TEED goes back to what seems like the Jurassic Era when looking at the modern EDM landscape, when the (then) newly released Household Goods took our brains by storm and ushered in a new way for us to take in this type of music. Electronic music didn’t have to be a club hit or a 4×4 banger, it could be experimental, melodic, and entirely unique. That’s what TEED has been and will always be – one of a kind.
And although his alias hints at a plurality, the oneness of TEED is exhibited in everything from his productions to his live performance. Crafting each track individually using a variety of on stage hardware and synths, and providing all the lyrics to his songs with his own voice, Orlando is a one man wrecking machine. His productions have gained him worldwide notoriety over the last 3 years, and his debut album Trouble released a couple months ago is within our top 3 this year, and as one of our favorite artists out there it’s about time he got a chance to take on the fabled essential mix. TEED sticks to his DJ roots in the mix, throwing together a very eclectic selection of tracks with a few exclusives to boot, and provides a very pleasing listen. Listen up and don’t forget to download!
